In addition to the usual services at Greenwich, I have preached three fourths of the past year, every other Sunday evening, to a very attentive congregation in the neighborhood of Glenville.
The increase during the past year, in attendance and devotion to the best interests of Christ Church, has been as great as could be expected, consequently I feel warranted in reporting this Church in a condition decidedly prosperous.

There are two excellent libraries, the Sunday School and the adult; the former containing about 600 volumes, and the latter about 225.
In consequence of the Parish being destitute of a Rector, the offerings of the Church which have supported the libraries and done much for other charitable purposes, have nearly ceased.
Sunday School in operation, containing about 100 seholars.

SUMMARY OF PAROCHICAL REPORTS.
Reports have been received from 63 Parishes; of which only 53 have given the number of families ;-only 50, the pumber of baptisms; and only 52, the number of communicants. To these reports the publishing Committee have added, in brackets, the number of families, in the last report of them, from 5 Parishes; and the number of communicants from 6 Parishes. The Reports as thus corrected, give the following statistics : Families in 58 Parishes,
5059 Baptisms in 50 Parishes-infants, 579
683 do. do.
adults, 104 Communicants,-added by removals, in 33 Parishes,
added, anew in 41 Parishes,
180 actual gain by removals,
10 do. gain, by new additions, over loss by deaths,
285 do. present number in 58 Parishes,
5468 By a reference to the Journals of former years, we find reported in 1834; Families in 48 Parishes,
4003 Communicants in 58 Parishes,
5082 Reported in 1837. Families in 55 Parishes,
4217 Communicants in 55 Parishes,

5059 Communicants in 58 Parishes,
5468 It will be seen from these data, that according to the reports, as made to the Convention, there has been only 386 persons added to our Communion in the last six years. Now a glance at the reports of those six years,
will show that there has been a mistake somewhere. The number of communicants added to the several congregations during these several years, as reported to the several Conventions, are given below. We add also a comparative view of the Church for twenty one years, beginning with 1819, and ending with 1840. The first column contains the year ; the second, the number of Clergy having Cures within the Diocese, at the time of the meeting of the
Convention; the third, the number of Parishes that reported any increase
